Following recent revisions to the National Planning Policy Framework (NPPF) and the Planning Practice Guidance (PPG) applicants should be mindful when submitting planning applications of the following:
Paragraph 189 of the NPPF requires an applicant to describe the significance of any heritage asset that may be affected by a proposal. Any planning application within a Conservation Area or relating to a Listed Building (or affecting its setting) must be accompanied by a heritage statement with the level of detail proportionate to the assets’ importance. Any statements which do not provide sufficient information could delay the determination process or may result in the refusal of the application. Please see the Validation Checklist (page 14) for more information.
Applicants are reminded when submitting viability assessments as part of the planning process that the PPG states that they should be proportionate, simple, transparent and publicly available to ensure that over time the data available for future assessments is enhanced. All viability assessments should be prepared on the basis that it will be made publicly available. Please see the Validation Checklist (page 8) for more information.
